New Exhibition to Open at York Minster Soon

Light, Glass & Stone: Conserving the St Cuthbert Window explores the window’s history, its stories and the new £5m, five year project which started at the cathedral in spring this year to conserve the window and the stonework of the South East Transept in which it sits.
 
The window, which dates from around 1440 and is one of the largest surviving narrative windows in the world, tells the story of the life and miracles of one of Northern England’s most significant saints.
 
Visitors to the exhibition will have the unique opportunity to see at close range a selection of stained glass panels removed from the window as part of the conservation work, alongside an animated projection and soundscape of one of St Cuthbert’s miracles.
 
The exhibition will open to the public on June 25th.
